Redrow plc (LSE: RDW) is a British housebuilding and general construction company based in Flintshire.

It is listed on the London Stock Exchange and is a constituent of the FTSE 250 Index.

Steve Morgan had been working as a site agent for Wellington Civil Engineering when, in 1974, the parent company decided it was to be closed.

Morgan offered to take over the contract, borrowed £5,000 from his father, and completed the contract at a profit.

Further work was carried out for Wellington and, still aged only 21, Morgan registered his new company — Redrow.
